The Scottish Arts Council launched its annual report last week, designed for the second consecutive year by EH6. The front cover uses a photograph of a laughing child by Chris Hall Photography, chosen to represent enjoyment of the arts without favouring any individual art form. A full-colour fold out section within illustrates the range of SAC-funded projects undertaken during the last 12 months.
The council has chosen design consultants Publica to provide strategic oversight for its £235 million plan, which may include “more plants, reduced traffic and fewer building emissions”.
Some 25 years on from its first launch, the series dedicated to great thinkers and philosophers is being updated with 20 more titles.
The visual refresh hopes to make the data-heavy environmental and energy resources magazine stand out from its competitors.
D&AD foundations director Paul Drake advises design graduates and those studying to make the most of the current spirit of “generosity” in the industry.
